Pinning From Your iPhone - A Tutorial

Hello everyone,

I'm here today to show you a really cool trick!
If you are as addicted to Pinterest as I am, you'll LOVE this!

I've been using the Pinterest iPhone app for some time now but always wondered how I can PIN using my phone. I know that I can repin when I am using the app but if I am blog stalking on my phone, I would LOVE to be able to pin away just like when I'm on my computer. Well, today I found a way to do this! Yay!!

I made a tutorial just for you :)


First, you need to change one of your bookmarks on your web browser. Go to your bookmarks and choose EDIT, choose the bookmark that you want to change (in the pictures, you'll see that I chose the Facebook bookmark). 

 

Change the name of the bookmark to "Pinterest" and type this code in the address:

javascript:void((function(){var%20e=document.createElement('script'); e.setAttribute('type','text/javascript'); e.setAttribute('charset','UTF-8'); e.setAttribute('src','http://assets.pinterest.com/js/pinmarklet.js?r='+Math.random()*99999999);document.body.appendChild(e)})());

**You may want to open this tutorial in your phone so that you can copy/paste it instead of typing it all in**


Now, you'll see your new bookmark named Pinterest. 


Your job is done!
Want to see how to use it? Here's how!

Browse the internet, just like you usually do. 



When you find something that you want to PIN, open up your bookmarks (without leaving the page you are on). Choose your new Pinterest bookmark. 

Here is what you will see.


Are you seeing the light yet??? Hehehe!
Now, you just have to choose the picture you want to PIN and you will see this.


Woohooo! You did it! You pinned from your iPhone :)

I hope you found this tutorial helpful!

Later gators,
